I escaped on a walk and was missing for 14 hours before my family found me in a neighbour’s live trap they were using to catch skunks. I wasn’t ashamed, but I was very hungry! (She was also very irritated that I insisted on taking a photo before we let her out. Bandit is her name, and it’s appropriate!
While I also get Steven’s point of view, I can identify with Bismuth’s fiery revolutionary feels. And I have a lot of songs that fit those feels, so I decided to make a playlist in tribute to her. I hope she comes back soon! #Freeher.

This is a fantastic idea. I’m totally jumping on this bandwagon!

4 miles this morning in the almost dark. No Maggie but also no Phillip the Skunk sightings. I think I found my new favorite running Pandora. I was running and singing Rapture and I Touch Myself haha. It made for a fun morning. Also, look how beautiful sunrise was over the lake.
Because sometimes what you need most is to watch a whole floofy family of French-Canadian skunks, mama and skunklings, bobbling down a lane in Pointe-Taillon National Park in Quebec. There they encounter a cyclist named Francois Arsenault, who remained very calm and still as they gave him a thorough sniffing, and then continued bobbling on their merry way:
Yesterday we had a birthday for the dogbear. Decan is 2 years old and he knew something special was going down the minute we started preparations. We gave him a banana and a squeaky toy in the shape of a cupcake with cream cheese on top (his two favorite people foods) and then a meat bone thing, which, you know, is perfect for dogs. He loved every bit of it. To be honest, he didn’t love the paper hat, but he put up with it.
When we set the plate down on the ground for him, he pranced around and sort of looked at everyone like, “Really?! I get to eat off of a plate?!? WHAT?!?!” And then he settled in to eat his treats. We let him go outside with the squeaker toy, which he immediately destroyed, and then we enjoyed ourselves some root beer floats, because it was a birthday party afterall.
A while later, he was itching to come in (which is rare - he usually wants to live outside), and as soon as he got in the door we realized why. He’d been skunked. He smelled worse than skunk smell though. At short range, it has a sort of gasoline quality to it. I fired up the internet which told us how to get rid of the smell and then we whipped up a concoction of baking soda and dish soap and some other stuff. We had to trap him in the bathroom and lift him into the tub, and he really hated it.
It was like the dog equivalent of partying too hard and then having your friends clean you up after you’ve thrown up all over your dress in the cab.
